The Science Olympiad National Tournament is the pinnacle of achievement for 120 of the country's best Science Olympiad teams, representing more than 2,000 students. Science Olympiad is an international non-profit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers. These goals are accomplished through classroom activities, research, training workshops and the encouragement of intramural, district, regional, state and national tournaments.
This year, the Science Olympiad National Tournament was hosted on May 17-18, 2013, by Wright State University. This was the culmination of more than 280 regional and state tournaments. The national tournament is held at a different university every year. This rotating system gives students a chance to visit new parts of the country, to tour different universities, and to build memorable experiences.
Wright State University will host an invitational tournament on January 11, 2014 to provide opportunities for student to prepare for regional competitions. Email CeAnn Chakler or call 937-776-1062 to register for the Wright State invitational.
